At Pickering Village Dental in Ajax, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances to help protect your oral health and overall wellbeing.
What is a Dental Appliance?
To maintain oral health, we need to do more than brush or floss. For those of us who play sports, who snore or clench or grind our teeth, protecting our teeth is an ongoing concern.
Dental appliances can help protect and preserve our oral structures, in addition to our overall physical health. At Pickering Village Dental, we offer dental appliances such as night guards and sports guards that can help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
We encourage our patients to stay physically active, whether that's on the field, rink, court or elsewhere. To keep your head in the game, we strongly recommend sports mouth guards for patients who play any sports where their mouth, jaw or teeth is at risk of coming into contact with objects or people.
If you take a hit to the mouth while playing sports, a custom-made mouth guard acts as a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth to protect your smile.
Do you regularly grind your teeth while you sleep due to stress or other causes? A custom-made mouth guard can help protect your upper and lower teeth from damage and injury.
If habitual jaw clenching is your issue, a special mouth guard can help prevent the clenching and alleviate painful symptoms.
Your dentist can fit you with a mouth night guard that will act as a buffer between your jaws and teeth.
